Coffee Lovers Bloghop-Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Winter 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Today I'm playing along using some of Hop Super Sponsor Verve Stamps and I'm also playing along with the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge for December!  Here's what I made:


The pretty plaid and polka dot papers are from My Minds Eye.  Just love that strip of glitter that is incorporated into the plaid!  


The pretty sentiment and cup are from the Verve Holiday Treats Stamp Set (and it's on sale right now!)  The set was one of my picks when I won the monthly challenge a couple months ago... it was so awesome!  I got this and another Christmas set and a few other things!  I stamped the cup in Versamark, embossed it with Gilded Embossing Powder from Brutus Monroe and then used my zigs to color in the white stripes and handle to make it stand out a bit more.  Don't you love that cute sentiment!?


Quite a few of the embellishments on this one were laying around on my workspace overflowing from my "extras" container.  Not quite right for some other project but perfect for this one!  I love it when I can use up extras!


The other items I used on this one were from various companies.  The doily is from Gina Marie Designs, the snowflakes are from Lawn Fawn, the sequins are from Paper Sweeties, the Poinsettia is from Craftin Desert Divas, and the border is from Poppy Stamps I believe.  All of these companies are Sponsors for the Coffee Lovers Hop.. pretty awesome right?

I'm also playing along with the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge and this week's twist is Polka Dots!  You should check this one out too!  It's a Ning group so you have to join, but it is a lot of fun with lots of challenges and prizes!

Here is the sketch!  Hope you'll play along over there too!


As some of you know for most of the past hops I've commented on every single project.  I think once I just didn't have time in the middle of tax season and I tried to keep going after, but I never did make it quite all the way through...lol... it still haunts me!  I'm going for it again this year and I'm on 116!  It's a Labor of Love... I so enjoy seeing what everyone is using (although it does lengthen my wish list).  You should be hearing from me soon!  Thanks so much to all who have stopped by and left some love!  I do appreciate it!

See you again tomorrow!
